The link (above) goes to an Economist.com report about an OECD study that looks at the percentage of post-secondary grads who take jobs that don’t require a post-secondary education.
Clearly Canada is doing something wrong…. 2nd place? Yikes. According to this data, approximately 37% of college and university graduates are taking ‘low-skill’ jobs, those that don’t require post-secondary education.
Not to say that education isn’t valuable, but when more than 1/3 of grads are taking jobs that they are overqualified for, things are not going well!
I originally saw this at Good.is which if you don’t already read, you should!
